This was a vague question on my part. It was based on my memory of my first spell checker, which was put out by the Dutch User Gruop, 4tex.
It was slow and it did change the current file screen. However, it ha a nice feature: Specifially, it displayed numbers on the lower left corner of the screen. So, when the numbers started to increase fast, I had the feeling that I am making good progress.
I thought that you can ask Vedit to perform anything related to spell checking, in particular this item.
Now, to be a little more specific, I did some experiments.
First I did verify that the arguments of Statline_Message( )
do take test registers. Like,
Second, I verified that I can put the cursor position into a numeric register. Like,
Third, I take that I would have to convert the number in N-reg %10 into a string. I just do not know how to do it.

Does this sound reasonable ?
Thanks as always.
